    Anyone planning to get this one?
    I would like to get the book, but it isn't sold separately.

    Its good that new players are getting freebies. :)

    I would that love to have that sticker sheet, but I'm not buying another copy of the game just for it.

    For those of you who might be confused cause I sure as heck was.

    This feels like something that should have been a day 1/limited edition also I don't understand the logic of doing this so late in Splatoon 2's life span as I can still find normal copies of the game like...everywhere.
    What are you planning to announce soon Nintendo? Is it a Star Fox 3D/Bravely Default reprint???

    If we could transfer save data from one cart to another I wouldn't mind trading in my physical copy just to get the starter one at a lower price. Although I'm 100% sure someone will eBay the extras....but I hope they didn't change the cart sticker.....

    They'd make a ton more money off of selling separately. Or people will eBay them for a way high price. Stickers seem cool. I wonder if the starter guide has numbers for points scored for rainmaker on different maps... Although then again there's so many updates and such how could they just make an "in-depth guide?" I don't think "walls don't count as points in turf war" is very in-depth... even for a beginner.

    Well... It does come with a guide, so at least that's nice for newbies starting out. While guides (esp. for multiplayer games which get patched a lot) can get outdated pretty quickly, Judd does give some useful advice sometimes so maybe it could be helpful?

    I agree it should've been released way earlier. But possibly this is an attempt to get a new wave of players in post the Christmas wave. Let's see how successful it is. I sure hope it will be.

    Agreed. Contrary to Splatoon 1, Splatoon 2 was released for the birth of a console, not for its end. Additionally, Nintendo pledged atleast 2 year splatfest support. So I hope it will still be rolling well for 2 more years. Naturally, player activity will fall then.
